Gabriel Bitar (Ottawa, Ont.), a 1st year student-athlete from the Carleton Ravens, has been named Investors Group Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Male Athlete of the Week, powered by 2XU, for the period ending October 10th, 2017.

Bitar, a first-year striker for the No.4-ranked Ravens men's soccer team, had a prolific scoring weekend in Carleton's two victories over Queen's and RMC.

The 5-foot-9 talisman sniped both of Carleton's goals in a 2-0 shutout win over the visiting Gaels on October 7, before adding another two-goal tally in a 5-0 final against the Paladins. Bitar, a native of Ottawa, ON, scored two game-winning goals to grab a share of the conference lead with four on the campaign, and his 13 goals on the season ties him with teammate Stefan Karajovanovic at the top of the national scoring race.
